Obamacare ten years later

An Update from the United States

Monday 14 January 2019   18:45 to 20:15


Professor Tim Hoff, Northeastern University, Boston; Visiting Associate Fellow, Green Templeton College

Almost ten years ago in the United States, work began on what would ultimately become the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.

This Management in Medicine seminar will examine how Obamacare has transformed key parts of the United States healthcare system and changed how many Americans think about the role of affordable healthcare in their lives.

Professor Hoff will discuss the major takeaways from the Obamacare experiment, policy lessons that could be exported from Obamacare to other healthcare systems internationally, and whether Obamacare has inched the United States any closer to a single-payer health system, or taken it more in the direction of a corporately dominated, privately run system.

Tim Hoff is Professor of Management, Healthcare Systems and Health Policy, Patrick F. and Helen C. Walsh Professor, D’Amore-McKim School of Business, School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs, Northeastern University, and a Visiting Associate Fellow at Green Templeton College.
